I had no idea this was being released so soon, but some of my Dad's photos from his time with the Squadron are in it. From what I understand, apart from many photos never seen before, there are also almost two dozen colour profiles based on the photos. I know it's a narrow subject area, but I'm pumped!!

Thanks for sharing. That's awesome because I have a large set of 303 P-51 decals.

 

Must try that vodka. :D

 

Probably not before decaling...  :hmmm:

I'm glad that Polish pilots are finally receiving well deserved attention.

It is good Martin, there has been some incredible stuff being published but much of it is in Polish only. More and more is available in English though.

 

Most of the exiled air forces need more attention in English. The Czechoslovakians, the Belgians and French, the Dutch...all need some good solid books written about them.
